The Palladium-Catalyzed Intramolecular Alder-Ene Reactions of O- and N-Linked 1,6-Enynes Incorporating Triethylsilyl Capping Groups

Nugent, Jeremy; Matoušová, Eliška; Banwell, Martin; Willis, Anthony


A series of O- and N-linked 1,6-enynes (e.g., 11) have been prepared with each subjected to a palladium-catalyzed intramolecular Alder-ene (IMAE) reaction, thus producing the isomeric and cyclic 1,4-diene (e.g., 12). These processes proceed most effectively when a triethylsilyl group is attached to the alkyne moiety and so generating alkenylsilanes that can be manipulated in various useful ways, including via iododesilylation (to give, for example, iodoalkene 62).
